  1. Get rid of it and buy the better model. If you change anything from non standard you will need to notify your insurance company even for a radio upgrade. its girls car reguardless what you do to it.....
  2. as its the edge model i would not bother. you will need it jigged incase the chassis is bent and the front section check to see if the chassis where the suspension is hel in place has not been damaged then after carrying out all the work needed it needs re registering with the dvla and a new mot as it was more than likely a write off as it looks like the wheel has taken a heavy knock i personally would not bother. the cost of the work etc you may aswell buy one thats up together unless you like a project to take on
  3. sounds like you need to start off by changing the clutch.cost about £125.00 then about 2.5 hours fitting.if the clutch is biting low then it's not worn its when it bites high its worn so more info on that please. does the grinding noise happen on tockover or when moving or when clutch is depressed and is it a defo grinding or rubbing noise or metallic noise ie metal on metal ?? more info please
  4. so what your saying is you gonna drive 40000 miles to a dealer to have the dash removed because you got a leak without investigating it your self it maybe a duff door seal or the windscreen needs sealing. you need to investigate it if you allow a dealer to sort it it will cost more that to ka is worth
  5. the ka rage are usually pretty good. i recon you got one thats had issues in its past and they sold it on and you got it. try disconnecting the battery over night then re connect it for the ecu etc to reset it's self it maybe the ecu or it needs remapping . keep us posted as this maywell help others in the future
  6. its to indicate a bulb has failed so check all exterior bulbs again. if one has not failed then it maybe a dirty contact on one of the bulbs ? when my daughters light came on it was a rear brake bulb. replaced and all sorted so have someone in the car to do the lights while you look for the duff bulb and dont forget the indicators use the hazzard button. i hope this has been of help page 119
  7. a lot of cars have only central locking not remote central locking your one has only central locking so cant use remote locking look here
  8. i doubt the previous owner realized you need a chip in the key to start the engine you do need the master if you ever do any work on the ignition. pop into fords and ask them about a replacement.
  9. not really worth messing with . you will have to notify your insurance aswell and have the car re registerd with the dvla then it maybe a sod to sell on best to save ££ and get a car that has performance as standard like a fiesta st or the fiat 500 abarth.
  10. did you find the leak andy. let us know for future referance for others to use.
  11. ahh the old rusty ka bites back. glad you got it sorted
  12. any luck russwh
  13. did you get the squeeling sorted ifso what was the cause
  14. replace the ht leads and then if no good have the car tested as you may have hit the timing out on the cam when the head was done. why did you have the head skimmed and the other parts if it was a runner ??
  15. i would first replae plugs and ht leads and air filter. have the wireing check on the battery and altinator aswell. some obd readers oony does the basic reads not a full read and i dont always trust them as they cannot find a broken or damaged item so it's down to us to replace on a trial and error basis. i had similar on my fiesta and it turned out to be altinator plugs and ht lt leads. the fuel pump is working as it does fire up so you eliminated that. check the air hoses are not split aswell as that will make it sound like a tank as would a hole in the exhaust
